10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: CyberSeb on Aug 21, '07 09:30:47AM
I'm not sure if the "sudo chmod 664 /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/*"-trick has really worked for me.

Thanks to I have found a way to call DMProxy on every fast user switch ...


1. Create a file "/Library/" with the following contents:

sleep 3
say "D M Proxy"

You can remove the last line; it's just for testing purposes to see if the script will be called later on.

2. Change the permissions with:

chmod 770 /Library/

3. Open /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/Kicker.bundle/Contents/Resources/Kicker.xml with your favorite text-editor and add the entries from below. Do not add it directly at the end, just above the last two lines - you'll see.


Reboot the machine. It should work ...
